The article presents the results of evaluating the ability of activated sludge, saturated with anammox bacteria, to adapt to mesophilic and lower temperature operating conditions. As the main temperature regimes, temperatures of 30, 25, 15, and 13°C were selected. The system has demonstrated stable operation at temperatures about 15°C with the highest degree of purification for ammonium nitrogen - 0.33 mg/L. At the same time, the concentration of nitrites reached 0.07 mg/L taking into account forced nitration. An additional increase in the efficiency of the system requires structural changes in the adopted technological scheme of the bioreactor, however, the introduction of an internal system of recirculation of attached biomass (with load) inside the anammox compartment is considered as an essential element of the system that ensures stability.
